We turn to you O Lord with sadness at the choice of those vital young men to remove their life vests and be carried out to sea. We ask that you bless them, have mercy on them and may on our Last Day find that they too will be safe in your arms.

Be there please to strengthen the surviving young man as he faces the loss of his friends. Survivors guilt can be a tremoundous burden. Ease his suffering. Amen.
